Mining Quarry

The Mining Quarry is a machine that requires diesel fuel to run in exchange for stones, sulfur or high quality metal. The Mining Quarry is always prioritized to spawn in Procedural Maps, Stone Quarry spawns in Temperate, Sulfur Quarry spawns in Desert and High Quality Metal Quarry spawns in Snow (although the seed might glitch and have them in the wrong biomes). The Mining Quarry cannot be locked to a player. However, you can build High External Walls around the Mining Quarry and use auto turrets to stop players from entering the Mining Quarry and stealing your resources. As of December 2017, mining quarry is no longer craftable or available as a loot drop. It is only obtainable by admins. To place the Mining Quarry, you require Survey Charges. Find a biome that is common in the resources you want to mine. Throw them on a suitable spot (preferably flat ground). If any of the resources (stones, sulfur, high quality metal or crude oil) pops out from the explosion, it means the spot will have the resource for the Mining Quarry to mine (sometimes can be stones with sulfur or high quality metal). Turn 360 degrees to check if the Mining Quarry can be placed. If placed, put diesel fuel inside the blue barrels located at the side of the Mining Quarry and climb to the top and start the engine.

As of this writing, December 9th 2019, for the server I'm on...
The HQM Quarry consumes 4x Low Grade Fuel to produce 2x High Quality Metal Ore. This is the smallest amount of Low Grade Fuel you can use to get anything.
Each Low Grade Fuel takes about 10 seconds to consume (rough timing), so you can then derive how long it will take to consume the Low Grade Fuel you have, and how much you will get out of it.
I recommend that you stack your Low Grade Fuel in numbers divisible by 4, so that you don't waste Low Grade Fuel only partly mining.
For example, a 248 stack of Low Grade Fuel will produce 124 High Quality Metal, and take ( 248 x 10 / 60 ) 41.333 minutes to consume and produce.
Generally, a time costly endeavour, but an option if you have a glut of Low Grade Fuel and can't find any other sources of High Quality Metal Ore.

As of writing in February 27 2023, if any quarry, especially HQM quarry is near powerplant it is an incredible seed. This is because powerplant will net you 3 diesel fuel per run. This equates to 150 HQM per run.

Basically useless unless you are really low on HQM. May be useful for a big clan, but don't farm sulphur with it.
